My 2 boys have asthma. My youngest has severe peanut allergy (inhalation)along with asthma. This is usually the worst season for him with colds, asthma, etc. They have both been on these great supplements I found--gummies- without any allergic ingredients that would bother my sons. They have done beautifully on them for 3 months so far, and their immune system seems much stronger. My little guy gets over colds so quick now, without the sinus infection he would always get. I researched these supplements intensely, and only decided that I would try them when I listened to Dr. William Sears--prominent pediatrician and author speak about these gummies for children's nutrition.

i dont think anyone considers coconut a tree nut. may contain milk is on a lot of candies too, it most likely means that the machinery may not be cleaned properly and they make things with milk.

They were six years ago when I called. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]
(Though they thought I was the strangest woman they had ever talked to at the time....)
As I recall, the only FA issues with them were from the caramel color. ( And it was either a wheat or milk risk-- sorry, it has been too long for me to recall which it was. Both were a problem at the time. )

Does anyone use Flintstones? We use those without problems. Any information that we should know?

For that matter, does anyone use a child's vitamin that is not mass-marketed (ie Flintstones or Centrum).
I about broke my knees at the drugstore the other day (why do they put them on the lower levels, oh yeah to sell them to kids!) Trying to find a child's vitamin that doesn't have soy, wheat, egg, nuts, etc. Also really trying to find a vitamin that doesn't have sucralose (Splenda) or saccharin in it. I would much rather my child have the all-natural sugar if they feel they must sweeten a vitamin. Why am I such a freak???

I'm with you on the artificial sweeteners. Why do they have to put them in so many products? That was why I stopped giving my kids vitamins (not that they eat as well-balanced as I would like...).

when i called flintstones earlier this year they told me that the vitamins were manufactured in a nut facility. so they were a "no" for us. i think there are people here that use them tho.

When I called last year they said that they do not have nuts but cannot gaurantee what their suppliers do. I will call to check them again.

I'm the same way-I won't buy anything with sucralose in it unless I have no choice (kids' tylenol and other kids' meds have it). If you're a freak so am I. We're lucky that we're not avoiding as many things as you are though-it would really be hard to find safe things. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
